Interview with Inakat

What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my latest book "Third Base" is really a look at some of the ways we see different forms of love in ours lives. Thomas Base is the hero who battles challenges with the healing power of his love for music. He is looked upon, as the man who made something out of a natural talent that is successful.While his sister, Misty who moved to another state, after a messy divorce, has not had much success love at personal love. Her plan was to leave love alone forever, until she meets someone that re-ignites her passions. The problem is he arrives just after she had promised her estranged family that she was soon to return home to them.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I sold my first book on Smashwords. I found so many great resources on Smashwords that helped cultivate the creation of an actual product. I got my first author high from Smashwords with that sale. It was in that moment that I saw "Hey you can do this!"
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I attended a seminar given by the Motown Writer's Network that was held by Sylvia Hubbard here in Detroit, MI. There were author's there that spoke form both sides. It came down to the the simplest of things for me which was whether I wanted to hold on to everything and do a lot of work or whether I wanted to leave that to someone else and shop around my work. Both ways had some appeal. I wanted to learn the industry though, so here I am.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
There are so many joys that I do not know how to answer that exactly. One thing that I get from writing is a personal and sometimes spiritual renewal of my sense of life. How I see things as an individual. Writer's get to express some of the deepest and most intimate, hopes, dreams, and lessons with others. Sometimes I teach and sometimes I learn. I love sexy, smutty, gritty, and raw stories. The single greatest real world joy that I get though is to hold my product. I get a rush every time that I hold a print copy of work. I sit, look it over, caress it, and marvel at the fact that I accomplished what I set out to do.That is my greatest joy.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean a lot to me.I try to interact with them as much as my schedule allows, because I enjoy making new friends and seeing previous connections. They inspire me to want to bring better content to share with them. Without them, this life would not be possible, so I thank every single one of them from here to eternity.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
School, work, and family obligations. I occasionally go out to the club because I love to dance. I am an excellent cook though, so I enjoy hanging out in the kitchen and whipping up a batch of comfort foods from around the world, particularly when I am entertaining family and various other company.
What are you working on next?
Right now, I am working on two things. The first is finishing a CD that I started a few years ago.I will be dropping that CD sooner than I thought, now that I am working on it again. In the meantime, I am working on Touch of Base Part Four. I do not have a title for it yet.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was a teenage version of Synz En Detroit. That book actually started a journal, many years ago, when I went through my Gothic Misfit part of young adulthood. I lived an alternative lifestyle to the fullest. I met some really nice people and also some characters that can only be described as a work of pure fiction..
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The sunrise. i love watching the sun come up, Even in the midst of winter, it is an awesome sight that I do not want to miss.
What is your writing process?
A glass of wine, cheese cubes, fresh fruit, and low light works best for me. I sit, sip, nibble, and write. i read it over later. At the moment that I am writing, I just zone out and listen to my characters tell me their story.
